If a program is PD?

I have some old episodes of "Markham" from 1959 that I got on ebay, and would love to share them, complete with original Schlitz beer commercials.

I sure wish there as more Ray Milland on here. He's my man!

I checked with the US copyright office and it seems all 59 eps of this series had their copyright renewed and most of the music from the series too.

If you click on and booklmark/favorite this link to the Copyright office online search page you can check for registrations for films from 1978 onwards and renewals for films from 1950 onwards.

That's too bad. I wanted to share them. :(

Thanks for the info, and sorry if that question had been asked a gazillion times!

Happy New Year!

It also appears that all the episodes of "Meet Mr. McNutley" (Ray Milland) have had their copyrights renewed. Dang it.

What a fantastic site that copyright site is!
